socky, press secretary for the obama campaign is in las vegas with the president. good to see both of you. nice big smiles. i love this optimism. we're all excited about tomorrow. barbara, let me start with you. there was something politico's chief political columnist wrote today that sort of made me smile and i wanted to get your reaction. roger same mondays wrote, there are three things mitt romney must do to win the presidential debate on wednesday. unfortunately, nobody knows what they are. do you know what they are? >> well, i think it's going to be talking to the american people about how the middle class has been buried under the higher taxes, the higher regulations and the -- just the job-killing policies for the past four years and how mitt romney can talk straight to the american people about how he has a plan to create jobs, specific things, like in my home state of virginia, he's going to allow us to have exploration off shore with energy so we can have good high-paying jobs. that's something supported by democrat senators like mark warner and jim webb in my home state
>>> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. >> that was a new ad from team romney, aiming to repair the havoc wrought about his infamous 47% comment as romney tries to show his compassionate side. yesterday he seemed to throw some cold water on his campaign promise to give a big across the board tax cut, perhaps a tacit acknowledgement the proposal had been based on funny, which is to say nearly impossible, arithmetic. >> individual income taxes ones i want to reform make them simpler, bring the rates down. don't expect a huge cut, because i'm going to lower exemptions but by bringing rates down we'll let small businesses keep more money so they could hire more people. >> mob dubious, cutting taxes will spur economic growth. joining us "new york times" d.c. bureau chief david leonhardt. a pleasure to have you on the program. yo

. i have seen both obama and romney suddenly tweak or change or drop language called out by fact checkers. ultimately, there was a decision there that it does not mean that much to us if we fix this. we will get less grief if we treat it a bit or change it on the margins, but the key things that move voters, such as, he apologizes for america or obama with that ridiculous thing about savings from the wars, and in the same breath he criticizes george w. bush for running wars on a credit card. he will say those on this one sentence after another without any sense he is contradicting himself. there is pulling there that says that is an effective line and moves voters. it does not matter what the actual facts are. that is when -- >> in that statement, he also said, fact checkers come to this with their own sense of thoughts and ideas and backgrounds. he is trying to redefine what a fact is. he is saying, there are no objective facts. it is to somebody else's opinion about what we are saying. it is kind of like redefining apology. they are redefining what effect is. >> i do not want t

. but really it's from both sides. i'm more liberal than obama when it comes to a lot of social issues. i'm certainly more conservative than romney when it comes to dollars and cents. i think that's where the majority of people in this country fall in. and who's being -- which party is representing what i think are the majority of americans that are fiscally responsible and socially accepting? well, that's just the philosophy i'm going to argue i continue to argue they have a resume' that not only suggests can i do this job but i can really do a good job at it. >> you know, there's a poll they saw in ohio in which your presence turns a one-point lead by president obama into a seven-point lead for the president. so gary, would it be gratifying at least for you if you just ended up being a spoiler in this election? >> well, i hope to get labelled as a spoiler. that would just be more attention for what i'm having to say. what i'm having to say is look, let's not bomb iran. that would be a third voice on stage. let's get out of afghanistan tomorrow. bring the troops home. that would be a thi

into these debates. who is the better debater? >> i think they are both mediocre debaters. president obama didn't win any of those debates, joe biden won them. the harvard and yale debates, will be paul ryan and joe biden. they will be better at it. romney is good in a group setting, not done a lot of one-on-one. john mccain wasn't the best debater either. he doesn't blow anybody away. >> i spoke with nate silver from the "new york times" who has looked at all the polls and how much ground mitt romney has to gain, as much as seven points, a lot to gain in some of the key battleground states through a debate performance when two guys can be very well prepared, one sitting president. >> kerry did it though against bush. >> i don't know that he made up all that ground. >> it's not the debate, what is it for mitt romney the last five and a half weeks of this campaign to change it? >> i think he does have to go big. he has to have a couple of really big ideas that connect with the american people and where they are. the economy is slowly getting better. there are real doubts about medicare plan that paul

this is an end run that while it's not illegal in any way, it is highly unusual. in 2009 president obama did send a memo to both the justice and defense d.s to arrange for ownership of the facility and prepare to take on federal prisoners, possibly some from guantanamo bay. a number of republican lawmakers, chief among them congressman frank wolf from virginia, led efforts to block the use of federal dollars so it couldn't be bought. wolf has also said he does not trust the defense department not to send gitmo prisoners to how thompson. senator dick durbin's office confirms the sale. you mentioned the amount, $165 million, and apparently this is a direct deal between the federal government and illinois meaning congress is not involved. durbin's office also says today that gitmo prisoners are not going to be located at this facility. that is the official word. we're working to conform more now -- confirm more now. alisyn: all right, shannon, thanks so much for that update. >>> serious new questions about the government's response to the fort hood massacre near he three afters -- nearly three years
think that we're always talking about how the stand stand-ins are selected. did the obama campaign choose senator ker troy stand in for mitt romney because he's also sort of a tall, white rich guy from massachusetts? >> we both know john kerry well and yes, all of those things are true but john kerry is also really smart and a great debater. we saw that firsthand in 2004. and he knows mitt romney. he's seen him up close. he followed him in his career in public life there in massachusetts. he knows the record. and i think most importantly he has a very good bedside manner with barack obama. they're very comfortable with one another and that's a big part of the process is running your paces with someone that you trust and you who understands you. >> jennifer: for sure. the romney campaign has chosen somebody who must have a really good bedside manner as well because he's been selected several times to be a stand-in. ohio senator rob portman is playing president obama for mitt romney. he was also a stand-in for john e
for a moment. who is the better debater really? >> they're both mediocre debaiters. barack obama didn't win debates, joe biden won. actual debates, harvard and yale coaches enjoy will be paul ryan and joe biden. they'll be better. romney is good in a group setting, hasn't done a lot of one on one. the president, john mccain wasn't the best debater either. >> i talked to nathan sproul, how much ground romney has to gain, could be as much as seven points, that's a lot to gain through a debate performance. two guys can be well prepared, one sitting president. >> he did against bush. >> it is not the debate, what is it for mitt romney in the last five weeks of the campaign to change it. >> i think he has to go big, has to have a couple of really big ideas that connect with the american people and where they are. the economy is slowly getting better. there are real doubts about the medicare plan paul ryan put in place, it is beginning to hurt them in battleground states. i don't think there's one thing that can turn it around for him except the ufo theory which i keep coming back to. just had it
immediate why it has never gone in support of a candidate, both in terms of the coverage of libya, what we are not being told, and, also, on the polls. they have a narrative. the narrative is obama is winning big. they have producing -- been producing polls that show that. they are getting a lot of democrats and they doing polls on race, age, sex and more. these are news organizations that are supposed to be broke, cutting news staffs and they are spending thousands and thousands on the state presidents that are very, in my opinion, flawed. what they doing, is a narrative that obama has won. at this stage, that is what matters and influences dough increases, it influences people working the campaign and it influences streeters. >>neil: here is where i remove my sinister thinking. i will say this: how can there be such a disconnect between national polls that are relatively tight and swing state polls that are not? they are tighter than a few days ago. the media is not telling you that. but how do you have that kind of a disconnect? >>guest: i have a question because request get it. i know
